As first time pawrents we were super excited to bring Willow, our German Shepherd puppy, home! Like many first time dog owners, we wondered what really was the best food for our pup?
After some ‘homework’ and advice from friends, we found that cold pressed was the way to go. It has benefits of a raw diet with the convenience of a regular kibble. So, at 12 weeks old, Willow started to get GURUvy!
We came across Guru’s bright, easy to use website and found lots of helpful information. As we’d never done anything such as transitioning before, we wanted to get as much information as possible. The great thing about Guru is that there’s always someone on the other end of the phone to help.
The transitioning process had begun…
We took Guru’s advice and started with 30% Guru/70% of Willow’s old food then 50/50, followed by 70% Guru/30% old food until she was on 100% Guru (this process is very important to avoid tummy upset). Guru informed us that every dog is different and therefore transitioning times can vary. We were lucky, as Willow transitioned to Guru very happily over a week, with no loose stools!
At 2 years old, Willow is a fully fledged Geekster! The GURUvy thing about Guru is that it’s suitable for all breeds of all ages, so we can feed Willow the same food her whole life, just adjust the amount we feed. The handy calculators on The Feeding Guide page of Guru’s website, help us to keep her in just the right shape. We gradually moved Willow from the puppy calculator to the adult calculator once she reached her ideal adult weight (she was around 11 months old).
Willow’s fave flave has to be the Surf & Turf… she can’t get enough! you’re not going to believe this… It only costs us £1.60 a day to feed her. Thanks to Guru’s high quality ingredients and furbulous cold pressed oils, Willow is happy, healthy & full of life with her shiny coat, fresh breath and dare I say it… pawfect poos every time!
Yaasss, Willow bobs absolutely LUUURVES her Venison Sausages. As they say, there’s ‘Nothing To Hide’ – such high quality treats with 70% British Venison! Guru’s sausages are a definite must have, perfect for popping in your pocket when out and about. Training has never been so easy, Guru told us that Geeksters will do anything for them and they weren’t wrong! If you haven’t found this out already, you NEED to…
Another GURUlicious point about Guru is their Trip bones. Willow never misses a #TripboneTuesday (even though she is pretty lazy and prefers the small Field Trip bones rather than chomping through a Road Trip, haha!)
Trip bones are super handy when on the move or even just as a tasty treat, but we make sure to knock the amount of grams off her meal later in the day to avoid over feeding.
Well, we think it’s fair to say Willow is Cold Pressed Obsessed! Thank you Guru for providing #TheBestforTheBest…
Have you tried Guru? No? Go on, grab a sample here… After all, what better way to grow than with Guru?
Lots of love,
Willow & her pawrents xx
Once a Geekster ALWAYS a Geekster
